Know Your Information!

Be a Savvy Information Consumer

It may seem that there is just too much available information--both free stuff found on the Internet and library resources.  Some of it is easily accessible, sometimes not so much. But when you find good information, how do you know it's credible, that is, how do you know you can trust it?  

  • Library resources are safe sources of information.  Databases include scholarly journal articles, newspapers, magazines, reports, and other formats, all of which have been evaluated by librarians or other information professionals.
  • Information from the Internet, on the other hand, should be closely scrutinized before you use it.  

What to look for?  

Evaluating Information Found on the Web can help you evaluate sources. Consider these criteria:

  • Currency - how old is the information? If it's too old, it may no longer be true or factual.
  • Relevance - how important is the information for your needs? Does it really address your topic?
  • Authority - where did the information come from? Did the author or creator include their credentials?
  • Accuracy - how reliable, truthful, and correct is the information? Can you locate additional resources that confirm or support the information?
  • Purpose - why does this information exist?  Is it to teach, sell, entertain, or persuade?

If you are uncertain about any of these criteria, feel free to contact the librarian.
